Securing the Internet of Things
Information security and privacy are becoming significantly more complex, and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it necessary for IT and security managers to clearly understand their business and design security into solutions from the start. IT managers need to be conscious of the massive number of devices and the data they process and distribute through autonomous actions.
Security managers need to understand the compelling needs of business solutions and apply new thinking to balance this new type of technology and enterprise risk management. Read the full paper, “Securing the Internet of Things,” for a detailed overview of where enterprises stand in an IoT world and what IT leaders need to consider when developing security strategies.
The Rise of IoT
From a technology perspective, knowing how organizations adopt these smart and connected
systems will help drive planning and investments. The first stage is knowing what you have, starting with discovery of systems and sensors, with a focus on security and scalability. In stage two, as you look to what things are on the horizon, moving from systems of record to fleets of engagement, you focus on analytics and visualization with dynamic interfaces among many systems.
The CIO is fast becoming the orchestrator of many different providers in the hybrid cloud world — and now IoT devices, too. To incorporate the transformation of the connected everything, the CIO and chief information security officer (CISO) need to redefine their scope and expand it to consumer-facing and operational technology domains.
The paper examines key enterprise issues involving IoT and security, including:
- Evolution of IoT in the connected world
- Business issues and scenarios
- Security requirements and guiding principles
- Distinctive IoT security issues
- The risk-reward of IoT
- Partner attributes
